"Green" Tampons/Pads

Updated: Seventh Generation and Natracare are two of my favorite "Green products" companies. Their tampons and pads are chlorine-free and use organic cotton, so Mother Earth and women both benefit.

For information about Seventh Generation chlorine-free menstrual supplies: "Most conventional feminine care products are made with absorbent fibers that have been bleached with chlorine, a process that sends dangerous chlorinated toxins into the atmosphere, water, soil…and our bodies": http://www.seventhgeneration.com/Organic-Cotton-Tampons
 
 
For more information about Seventh Generation green cleaning products, paper goods, and other household products, go to their website:   “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.” —From the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy:  http://www.seventhgeneration.com/products
 
 
Natracare menstrual pads are "made from totally chlorine-free, natural cellulose materials derived from ecologically - managed forests and are over 95% biodegradable and compostable. Natracare is first to use the new biodegradable Bioplastics that are made from starch and hypoallergenic natural and effective sugar-based absorbents, to replace commonly used, petroleum-derived synthetic materials:"   http://www.natracare.com/products/feminine_products.htm
 
 
For more information about Natracare products, including maternity, babycare,  and incontinence supplies, go to their website: "Natracare products are chemical and additive free, and biodegradable and contain only organic and natural ingredients sourced from sound ecologically managed producers:"
 
 
"The widespread use of chlorine is causing far-flung and extremely serious risks to our health and the health of the environment."  For an excellent article about the toxic hazards of chlorine, read: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/chlorine-in-household-cleaners.html
 
 
Why is Organic Cotton important?  "According to 1995 data...United States farmers applied nearly one-third of a pound of chemical fertilizers and pesticides for every pound of cotton harvested. When all nineteen cotton-growing states are tallied, the crop accounts for twenty-five percent of all the pesticides used in the U.S. Some of these chemicals are among the most toxic classified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In developing countries, where regulations are less stringent, the negative impacts are even more severe."   For more information about organic cotton: Sustainable Cotton Project  http://www.sustainablecotton.org/html/who_we_are.html
 
 
Thanks for going GREEN!
